Ah. That was my mistake.

If you’re going to visit a school before you’ve received a formal offer of admission, do not contact the department office. Email the professors directly. I’ve got at least one professor who’s willing to talk to me at GU. Hooray!


  1. Yeah, It’s pretty much like, “we’ll invite you, don’ invite yourself” But if a professor knows your interested in his research and you talk to him, and if he sees you as a fit, then he/she will often petition your acceptance. Grad school is weird/wonderful like that. Although at UCLA it hasn’t worked. GOOD LUCK & Keep posting.
